About Tvoje lice zvuči poznato

Tvoje lice zvuči poznato is the Serbian version of Tu cara me suena or Your face sounds familiar, a series developed by Antena 3 and Dutch media company Endemol. First aired in Spain, Your face sounds familiar now has versions in many countries around the world.

The format, in which celebrities impersonate well-known singers, resembles the Dutch show Soundmixshow, which was very popular from the 80’s until the early 2000’s, although this show focussed on unknown people performing as their favourite iconic artists.

The Soundmixshow was responsible for the breakthrough of many singers that went on to be successful artists and former Eurovision participants, including Gerard Joling, Edsilia Rombley and Glennis Grace.

The Soundmixshow was also the base for the British talent show Stars in their eyes (various seasons between 1990 and 2015).
